Make It Sentimental and Go Digi

HI All!

Hope you've had a nice week. It's been another busy one here and lots of fun going on behind the scenes at Whimsy Stamps too. It's going to be a really FUN September so stay tuned!

Today is new challenge day over at Just Magnolia and this week our challenge is super easy. We are calling it "Let's Get Sentimental" and all you need to do is include a sentiment on your project along with your Magnolia image. And it does NOT have to be a Magnolia sentiment, but you do of course need to have a Magnolia image on your project.

I've used my romantic Tilda on this card, I just love her. I went for a vintage feel on this one and used more K and Company papers with a floral pattern and some text paper as well. The image was colored with Copics and then layered on a tapestry embossed cream layer that was cut with Nesties. I also added some paper pierced details to the edge. The card was embellished with flowers, ribbon, lace, chandelier drops, and my sentiment in a hodgepodge frame with brads. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.

Next, I have my card for Stamp Something and we have a new challenge posting today as well. This week we are going digital again and have all used some fun digital images and papers in our projects. I chose this sweet image from Prairie Fairy, one of our sponsors, to make my card.

I used some BG Eva papers in fun pinks. The image was colored with Copics and then I added some glitter accents. I used the MS heart punch to add the detail across the middle of the card and then embellished with flowers and roses. It's pretty clean and simple for me, but to be truthful, it's been a hard week and I've not felt much like stamping. I was just happy to have a few minutes to whip something up.

I also made a quick treat container using some paper from Blackleaf Studios, another one of our sponsors this week. This is a sour cream container using one of the digital papers available in the prize at SS this week.

I created a sour cream container with these papers. It's a quick and easy project and having papers to just print out makes it even easier! I added a piece of ribbon and a sentiment framed with oval punches. These would make perfect treat containers for a party favor!

Thanks for dropping by today. I hope you have a great weekend!

Happy Stamping,
